Company Fashion Forum

Hey guys, so about a month and a half ago I made way to London, to the Hackney Picturehouse, to attend Company magazine's fashion forum, in association with New Look. It really was inspiring and I got some great advice. Once I was there I was surrounded by all kinds of fashionistas, which gave me serious outfit lust as everyone looked amazing. After our glass of complimentary champagne on arrival, the conversation soon started flowing, even if it was just to ask where someone's shoes/ necklace or top was from and as you were wondering the champagne was lovely, the shoes Office, necklace Urban Outfitters and the top was Zara; just wish I'd taken pictures of some of the gorgeous outfits I saw.

We were lead into the screening room where the seats were covered with goody bags; I mean who doesn't love a goody bag, half of the reason why I went. Once we were all settled in our surprisingly comfy seats we enjoyed a talk about the fashion industry. I learnt a lot and found it really helpful. It might have taken me almost 2 months but everything I heard and learnt from that evening has stayed with me and I feel very inspired and can't wait to style some new looks and write here on this blog.

All the speakers were really inspiring and gave great advice and took time at the end to answer some of our questions. It was really interesting to hear about their backgrounds and how they started out, none of them started in fashion and now are big names in the industry, it was very insightful. The talk was lead by the fabulous editor of Company magazine, Victoria White; the rest of the panel was made up of 2 wonderful women from New Look, the senior digital content manager Kathryn Kenny and senior PR officer Nicola Panayiotou; the very insightful stylist and presenter Angela Scanlon, who's trousers I was in love with on the night and well her whole outfit; the equally glamorous Oonagh Brennan, Company's associate editor fashion and finally Emily Johnston blogger at Fashion Foie Gras.

I would like to give a big thank you to Company and New Look for hosting the lovely evening and I will be putting their great advice to use.

Till tomorrow, hopefully a lot earlier in the day than tonight, the day just got away from me. I will be posting my outfit from the evening soon and of course all the goodies from the amazing goody bag.
